SSEEdit[edit]


  • TOOL
LOOT may have identified mods that need their masters sorted (Prvtl_HeavyArmory.esp and SL01AmuletsSkyrim.esp for example).
To do this, run SSEEdit through MO2 with the full load order selected.
Find any plugins identified as needing to have their masters sorted by LOOT in the left pane.
For each, [Right-Click] and select [Sort Masters (to match current load order)].
Exit xEdit, saving the plugins.

LOOT[edit]


  • TOOL
Run LOOT one final time before continuing.
Prior to running LOOT again (installing new mods, removing mods, making changes to load order, etc.), disable everything below this warning first.
Once done, re-enable each mod one at a time. Ensure that each one is not missing a master and/or consider any other changes and how they may affect the patches below (particularly the Dynamic Patches).
If in doubt, rebuild the patch(es).
Warning-Logo.png Warning:
Do not use LOOT past this point. If you do, ensure that the following mods are at the bottom of your load (right pane) in the order provided.


Info-Logo.png Notice:
Prior to beginning creating the Dynamic Patches, your mod count should be as follows (if following 100%):
Mods 745

3. In the pop-up window, select the [Skyrim SE] icon and click [OK].

3. Change NewPatch in both fields to Smashed Patch and click [OK].
4. Leave the default setting for mods that are already set with tags.
5. Change the setting of mods without a tag (Skip) by right-clicking >> [Smash Settings] >> [Smash] >> [Smash.All].

STARTUP[edit]

Part A: Starting New Game[edit]

It is time. Start a new game and create your character (Race, Gender, and Appearance). Once done, it will take a few minutes for all of the mods to register and the game to setup. Monitor the notifications to ensure nothing unusual occurs (something not found, something did not load properly, errors, etc.) As these notifications run, several mods will have windows that pop-up and await input (may appear in a different order, but mine show as follows consistently):

Taxes of Skyrim: Select [OK]
Pay Your Dues: Select [OK]
Animated Armory: Select [OK]
Attributes: Select [No]

You will also have the following mods complete a startup Quest:

Helgen Reborn
Adds Items Via Script

Once the notification menu is quiet, move on to the MCM recommendations.

Use the Mara statue to choose your start, and sleep in the bed to get going.

Once in game, complete the following:

Select a deity (Wintersun), if you choose to, in the pop-up.
Wait a few moments to allow the appropriate quests to start / run and a few more notifications to display.
Use your powers to Setup Attributes.
Use the Reflect power to choose your background.
If you do not want to use the Map Degredation system (from Helps To Have A Map), open the console and enter "set MapDegradationDisabled to 1".

Begin your adventure.

CLOSING THOUGHTS[edit]

Play[edit]

I hope you have enjoyed the journey as you are now ready to begin a new one - playing. The tricky part is turning off the "modding switch" and immerse yourself in the game. It is easy to get caught up in the cycle of mod, test, update, add mod, remove mod, test, update, etc. without ever being able to complete a game. If you are here... do not look for updates or more mods. Play. I have began taking notes as I play for things I would like to add/remove/change, and focus on that the next go round. Otherwise it would be never ending.

Endorse[edit]

Do not forget to endorse the mods. This is greatly appreciated by most mod authors. Modding is a labor of love, with the greatest return being knowing that others enjoy what has been put out there. Endorse, endorse, endorse.

Thanks[edit]

Many have contributed to this guide in a number of ways. I would like to thank everyone for their insights, suggestions, and assistance with the guide. If I have left anybody off, sorry - please let me know.
